Add some onions and cooked rice. I just know your family will love you for taking the extra steps, so they will be able to enjoy this delicious Japanese inspired dish.

How I miss Japan

I have always carried a taste for japanese cuisine. I lived all but about 4 months of my first 5 years in Japan. My mama use to laugh at me as I carried rice balls around as a toddler. Instead of crackers or cookies most American kids would have as snacks at that age.

I am in no way saying this is authentic japanese cuisine but, it has all the taste I can remember when we lived in Japan. These are taste memories that I have been carrying around with me for well, let us just say: A long darn time.

I was so lucky to have a mother that had taken the time, to surround her and her children, to all the culture each place my dad was stationed while in the Air Force, had to share. I am the girl standing in the front (middle) of the photograph to your right.

Yes, this dish might not be authentic but, it sure is delicious, I am sure no one will be bringing their plate to the kitchen empty. After enjoying this yummy dish.

Ingredients

4 pounds Chicken breast (boneless & skinless)
1 10 ounce bottle of teriyaki sauce (low sodium)
1 head of garlic
3 bell peppers ( yellow, red and/or orange)
4 portabella mushrooms
2 onions
1 cup chicken broth
Canola oil
Salt & cracked black pepper to taste

I am using baby bell peppers, if you too decide to use the baby bell peppers, it will take around 14 peppers

Roast

Cut the top off your garlic head. Place your garlic head in a piece of tin foil, tightly and Place in a 400 degree oven for 40 minutes.

In the meantime get your bell peppers ready to broil. If you are using big bell peppers, just place them under the broiler and turn them, as the skin starts to get charred and blisters.

If you are using baby bell peppers, cut them in half and place on a cookie sheet, lined with aluminium foil. Place under the broiler until the skin is charred and blistered.

Saute & Skin

While your bell peppers are cooking, dice your onions and set aside. When your bell peppers are cooked, place them in a bowl and cover. Allow them to sit for 20 minutes.

While you are waiting for the skin to steam off of your bell peppers, get a frying pan and on medium heat, place 2 tablespoons of canola oil.

When your frying pan is hot but, not to the smoking stage, add your onions and saute until they are soft and a bit golden around the edges. Keep a eye on your onions, as you take the skin off of your bell peppers.

Place your chicken breast, teriyaki sauce and your vegetables in a plastic baggie. Marinade overnight or for at least 6 hours.

Take your chicken out of your marinade, set on a plate and add two tablespoons of canola oil over your chicken breast.

Transfer your marinade from the plastic baggie to a sauce pan, add 2 cups of chicken broth and bring to a boil. Vegetables and all. When your marinade comes to a boil, take your marinade and chicken out to the grill.

Almost there

After you have gotten a good sear on your chicken breast, place your chicken in the tin foil pan.

Brush your mushrooms with canola oil and place on your grill, close the lid and cook until they are slightly tender. Bring both your mushrooms and the pan your chicken is in, in the kitchen.

When setting up your grill: Only put coals on half of your grill. Use the other half. so you are able to place your tin pan there and take advantage of the indirect heat but also, the smoke induced flavor it will add to your marinade.

Finish

Slice your mushrooms, add to your pan, Cover with tin foil and place in a 350 degree oven.

Cook until your chicken has reached a internal temperature of 165 degrees.

I am not able to give you an exact cooking time.

It all depends on the temperature of your grill and how long you keep the chicken on the grill.

I love sticky rice so that is what I serve with this dish but, you can use any type of rice you would like.

Look at that Goodness!

Place this yummy goodness on your plate and enjoy. If you serve this dish at your next neighborhood barbecue, you will for sure be the star of the show.


Why not serve this dish for your next football party...

Hmmmm....as a teenager, I once stayed in Japan, too! Teriyaki is among the words they gave to the world's vocabulary, not to mention their exotic cuisine! Really, OISHI! This made me hungry, Denise, my friend!

Ita dake masu!:)

Thank you, I am glad it is to your liking, the taste really brings me back there. I just wish I could share this meal with your butt, right here on my couch. Wouldn't that be cool, you and my family! You, my brother and I, could talk about Japan.
I get the grandson later around 6. He is going to watch the game with his gammy and then spend the night. So I am going to (finally) get some sleep. As always my dear friend, thank you for stopping by.:)

No cowboy, I was just given the opportunity to live there Back in the 60's. My dad is retired Air Force. I was also lucky enough to live outside of the states during majority of the 70's and we lived in Guam. I love both places, still. I think you could make this dish vert easy. Thank you for stopping by.:)

Actually hon, this is a very mild dish, it has flavor but as in Japanese cuisine, it is not a overpower taste, they like their food light in flavor. I just love sushi. I am thinking of doing a series on how to make sushi and more japanese style cuisine I make. Thank you for stopping by.:)
